A valid will is an essential part of any estate plan since it outlines how an individual's assets are to be distributed upon death. Even if it is executed in accordance with all applicable Michigan laws, that does not mean that it will not be challenged when the time comes. The dynamics of every family are unique, but there are still common threads behind every will challenge.
Relationships within a family are often complicated and in a constant state of flux. Family members get married, divorced and have children. Some family members could even predecease the maker of the will. If these changes are not accounted for in the will, disputes can arise. Furthermore, some family members could end up arguing over a specific piece of property regardless of what the will says.
